UNDP and European Union join hands to assist the Parliament in its efforts to represent the needs and views of Georgian citizens more effectively, to streamline law-making processes, and enhance governmental control. Much focus is placed on strengthening cooperation with European counterparts, launching public dialogue about European integration and ensuring easier access to public information.
